Pectoral Sandpiper Pugneys

A cracking watch & shoot for hour or so.
Get over to Pugneys Country Park for this Beauty!

It seemed to like hanging round us human Photographers.
Coming so close I had to shoot a Portrait!
I had it within 18" of my feet at one point.
Fingers crossed for one in our area!

First Post, Raptors at Whetstone

That's definitely Bradford.

Sizing up the opposition.

Reminds me of a chicken, that buzzard.

Nice line of sight.

Why does each picture appear before the last one??


Local buzzard, I bet it's the one that comes over our house.

There can be only one outcome really.
Hi, this is my first blog post anywhere, not just here, so I can only assume what this will look like...I'm winging it, and it's late. Apologies in advance.
-seems to compose upside down...
